The champion of the 137th annual Westminster Kennel Club Pet dog Show obtained one howling retirement present.
Banana Joe, a 4-year-old grand champion Affenpinscher as well as a group preferred, was crowned Best in Show at the yearly dog show in New York City. It was the plaything pet's last program, and also the very first Westminster Finest in Show win for the breed.
Affenpinschers are notable for their monkey-like faces– "Affe" suggests monkey or ape in German, where the breed originated. After defeating virtually 3,000 pet dogs tonight, Joe will fly back to his home in the Netherlands.
